*Friday Night Fights presents crazy fight and battle scenes from movies with little-to-no context. If you haven’t seen the movie, you’ll probably want to skip the clip. *
It might be hard to remember now, but there was once a time where we didn’t want to see Mel Gibson get his ass handed to him. In fact, when Lethal Weapon came out back in 1987 he was a bonafide hero. The film, written by Shane Black and directed by Richard Donner is still an action classic, thanks in no small part to this knock-down, drag-out fight. In the rain. With Busey. It’s just fantastic.
You’ve already been warned, but this IS the end of the movie, so if you’ve somehow never seen Lethal Weapon, this is SPOILER-tastic. Seriously though, how have you never seen Lethal Weapon?
